Commuter Check Prepaid MasterCard

Getting to work just got a little bit easier! Edenred national commuter benefit program has made available its contactless Commuter Check Prepaid MasterCard card with MasterCard “PayPass” contactless payment technology. This lets commuters pay for qualified public transportation expenses through their employer sponsored pre-tax benefit program with a tap. The card can be used as its own fare card within transit environments already equipped with contactless payment readers, such as subway turnstiles and bus fare collection boxes. Riders using the new MasterCard PayPass-enabled card can choose from several different fare options per availability from the transit agency such as, a “pre-fund”, “Âpay-as-you-go”Â, time-based fares (one day, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly passes) as well as discounted fares for senior citizens, disabled and student riders.
